A combination of improvisation and original sketches, the OTC Comedy Troupe is bringing its live comedy show to Gwinnett this weekend.

The troupe will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at Lionheart Theatre, which is located at 10 College St. in Norcross. Tickets are $10 per person.

The show infuses comedy improvisation with original sketches that offer a blend of “Saturday Night Live” and The Second City, a premier comedy club/theatre and school of improvisation in Chicago.

During the show, audience suggestions help the actors create scenes on the spot and allow the participants a chance to be the stars of the show. The show will also include sketches such as Celebrity Cow Tipping, Hamlet Over Easy and impressions of Meryl Streep, Ricky Gervais, Anne Coulter and Gov. Chris Christie.

“We love playing at Lionheart Theatre and look forward to our Spring Fling Comedy Special which will pack in some new material and surprises,” said Kelley Cody-Grimm, OTC artistic director. “Lionheart is a fantastic venue … The Norcross audiences are great fun to work with – we’ve done some of our best shows there.”
